- How many times a week do you wash your hair and why?
Daily, partly out of habit and partly because I don;t feel fresh and awake unless I do. With all my products, I like having a blank slate every day to experiment with new combinations.
- Do you co-wash/low-poo/something else and why have you made this decision?
I tried co-washing with several different products, but they all left my waves/curls flat and limp, probably because my hair is fine & low porosity. I use natural low-poos and poo bars, because they are better for my hair and the environment (especially the bars - no plastic bottles!)
I've been shifting towards smaller companies like Shea Moisture and KBB that were on the CG bandwagon before it even existed
I respect grass-roots entrepreneurship, and I want to promote it with my choices as a consumer.
- What washing techniques (so things like warm/cold water, etc) work particularly well for you? Why have you opted for them?
I use warm water after I shampoo, but a cold final rinse to close the cuticle, since this reduces frizz and tangles. Also, I do everything upside down: shampooing, conditioning, detangling. This gives me more volume on top, which is key for me because I'm always fighting the pyramid effect.
